Model Details

Mic Inputs.
The XL200 features a state of the art Analogue Devices mic
amplifier which assures low distortion and excellent amplifier
stability, RF rejection and noise performance.
Line inputs.
A separate Hi Z line input is incorporated which is ideal for
playback of recorded material.
Direct Outputs.
Every input module is fitted with a direct output as standard
making multi-track recording a simple task.
The sonic performance of the legendary Midas equaliser is
maintained including parametric mid's with sweepable frequency
and switched ‘Q’. The treble and bass sections have the
traditional Midas wide frequency range shelving characteristic.
Each channel has a half normalised fully balanced insert send
and return point which can be switched in or out from the front
panel and set as either pre or post equaliser.
Input metering.
These peak reading meters cover a 30dB range in 3dB steps and
monitor pre fader signals.
Audio busses.
Each channel can be routed to any combination of 21 audio
busses comprising of 8 aux'es, 6 mono groups, 2 stereo groups 2
stereo masters and 1 mono master. All switchable on the module
front panel.
VCA and mute busses.
Each channel can be controlled by any combination of the 8
VCA master faders and 8 mute masters. Assignment of these
busses is again switchable on the module front panel. Mutes may
also be controlled by the optional automation system. A safe
switch disconnects the channel from all mute groups.
Audio groups.
The main audio groups may also be assigned to any of the 8
automute groups. A safe switch is again included for each group.
The input for the groups is derived from the 10 group busses.
The master module provides the main left, right and mono
console outputs. A solo to master facility is incorporated on the
left and right outputs to aid the engineer at sound checks.
The 8 matrix outputs are a part of the group modules, and derive
their signals from the 6 mono audio groups, 2 stereo groups, left
and right masters and mono master. creating a 13 X 8 matrix.
Output meters.
32 peak reading led bargraph meters (each covering a 60dB
range in 3dB steps) are used to monitor all the group outputs i.e.
6 mono groups, 2 stereo groups, 8 matrix, and 8 auxiliary. 3 VU
meters are used for the left, right, and mono outputs. They also
automatically monitor the left, right, and mono solo functions
The Optional Midi Automation.
The Midi automation system provides 10 mute groups, 128
snapshots of mute settings and a solo-in-place mode which can
be used alongside the conventional PLF/AFL system.
